James Fenimore Cooper—The Short Stories includes two works by the prolific and popular author.

“The Lake Gun”, one of the last of Cooper’s very few short stories, is outwardly based on Seneca Indian folklore about Seneca Lake in central New York State, but also acts as a political satire commenting on American politics.

“The Eclipse” gives an account of an unknown male speaker’s encounter with a solar eclipse. The eclipse had a powerful impact on the mind of the speaker, transforming him, and the story appears to be the first time he has been able to talk about it.

About the Author

James Fenimore Cooper (1789–1851), the first major American novelist, was the son of a wealthy landowner who founded Cooperstown, New York. He attended Yale and served in the navy before turning to writing, winning international fame with The Spy (1821). After The Pioneers (1823), public fascination with the character of Natty Bumppo led him to write a series of sequels that gradually unfold the entire life of the frontier scout.
